Collaborative provision review

A collaborative provision arrangement is subject to a full review process within 6 months of its contract expiry date.

All arrangements that formally constitute collaborative provision are subject to a periodic review process. The Review is the principal means by which the University is assured of the efficacy and robustness of the collaborative arrangement in relation to the quality of its learning opportunities and academic standards. It is also the mechanism by which the renewal of the legal agreement governing the arrangement is approved.

The External Collaborative Review document provides further guidance on the review process off-campus, joint delivery and advanced collaborative arrangements. It does not cover arrangements that are characterised as low risk (progression arrangements) which do not formally constitute collaborative provision, as it is expected that these will be monitored via the school/faculty's existing rolling review processes (internal programme reviews and Annual School Reviews).
